I first saw how to manually prepare the caramel. The process struck me. It turned out that to prepare the caramel is not so difficult when you know how the process.
At ENEA has crafts park. It is a few buildings, where you can learn how to do various cool stuff. A year ago in this place I learned to cook cheese. It was found that apart from the main complex, there are several small buildings. One of them belongs to the caramel manufacture.
The building is small and is not on the winning place, I bumped into him in the summer. I went inside and realized that there are doing something interesting, but the people were so numerous that it was uncomfortable to be inside.
Every time I came to the Exhibition Center, tried to find the building, but all the time was passing. I was desperate to get into it, but recently traveled to on business park, and avoiding construction boom, accidentally came to the caramel manufacture.
Unfortunately, I did not have time to ask the owner, was late for a meeting, but something still managed to shoot. Let's discuss how to organize the first Moscow production of caramel, where all products are prepared by hand.
I went inside and got in a small shop, which presents sweets that make in the next room, talk about it later. Sweets in the shop a lot. I was very surprised by the price and here's why.
I have worked for many years pastry and know that products that do with their hands, and made from natural ingredients, it is expensive. But the store price, as you can see from the photos, quite a sane.
It turned out that for the production of caramel does not require expensive ingredients, as the basis of the sugar, and it is if you buy in bulk, is inexpensive. Envied business guys in my case full of expensive ingredients, which even in bulk are not cheap. But what looks like the production itself?
candy production is in the next room. To get there can be anyone, the doors are always open. I found the drawing process caramel.
First caramel like a thick sausage. She is constantly rolled, while the second person pulls the candy into long filaments. At this point, the caramel is still very hot. Therefore, the work goes to the special protective gloves, but even they feel the heat.
The filaments were then rolled on metal table, so that they are cool. After cooling, they are cut into small candy or twisted in lollipops.
It is a pity that I did not have more time, and it was time to flee. But I will definitely come back here to see the entire process of preparation of caramel.
